Dunseith is a town in the Turtle Mountains area of North Dakota. It has a population of about 739 people. Its elevation is 1,700 feet.


Dunseith is a destination point for visitors, because it is the gateway to the Turtle Mountains and it lies just a few miles south of the International Peace Garden. This beautiful botanic garden straddles the border between Manitoba, Canada and the US.
